Buy Great Coins: Every Coin Collector Needs To Hear This

Focus on quality when purchasing coins. That quality can manifest in so many different ways, but the joy in owning high quality coins is something that you should not look over. From ease in selling down the road to eye appeal to the preservation of history, having a few really nice examples of rare items is (in my opinion) a deeply rewarding way to collect coins in the long run.

  1. Thank you for the information! Even though I’ve been collecting for 4 years I still have so much to learn so I really appreciate it! I love to buy and sell coins. Coin roll hunt and keep the old ones! I actually got some coins today so that will be nice to hunt. Keep up the great work my man 🙂

  2. Bust half’s and Seated Liberty coins are my passion. When I was younger Bust half’s in high grades were dirt cheap. I had a lot of them until my brother stole them. Seated Liberty coins are beautiful and I think underpriced for the mintage. I just bought two 1861-O Seated half’s. They weren’t cheap but both are XF. One minted by the State of Louisiana and the other by CSA. Think about the history of these coins.
    I enjoyed this video.

    1. did your brother sell em for face or did he at least pawn em right? either way that sucks but yes you are correct both of those style coins are amazing and have attracted me since day one.

    2. It is my understanding he sold them at gun shows. Needed 5 coins to have a complete silver Washington quarter set in BU in a Dansco. Set of Walkers, all of my type coins and key date Lincolns.

  3. I collect short snorters also, I haven’t seen any videos of that, I could have some famous signatures, I haven’t researched them

    1. without verification of those who signed its kinda hard to believe. However if your able to verify them by a specific platoon or whatever then you have yourself some really good items that are not well known.

  4. I’ve always been a “by eye appeal” collector, like one of my favorite coins to collect is “misfit” barber dimes, with odd toning and wear patterns, as well as circulated 10% silver Mexican Un Peso’s.

  5. Matthew 7:12 – Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.—– John 13:34-35 KJV. A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. 🙂 Just a reminder.

  6. I totally agree with you, I have learned it’s better to buy one great coin verses ten average one’s, especially when you have a limited income and can only spend a given amount for each month. I have been doing it for 5 years now and I learned this the hard way.good advice

  7. I love your channel, you put out some really good information….. Now my stance. There are 2 different types of coin collectors. Those who are in it for the money (pun intended), and those who just love the coins. If your the first type, yes buy the best you can because it will be way easier to unload them later. If you’re in the second bracket, then just buy what you like, problem or otherwise, if it makes you happy to have it, that’s what counts. My personal collection has many “Problem” coins in it. I hate the word “Problem” because they are real coins that may just have had the dirt wiped off of them … In the end when I look at my collection I smile. These coins are tiny bits of art that somehow went from someones ordinary pocket change into something I cherish. Now I feel honored to be the curator of this small slice of numismatic history.
